Wretched man?

I know the good I should be doing. The good I should be doing is studying for my Pentateuch midterm. 

But I do not do the good that I should because rather than gather my thoughts around school, I'm blogging.

Aimlessly. 

Actually, this is probably more constructive than what I've been doing. Tonight, I made a Facebook account.

I am not totally sure why yet. It will likely fall into neglect within a week, but it was a lovely distraction from what I should be doing, which is studying. 

Now, I'm listening to Air and trying to figure out if I've done enough work and am tired enough to merit going to bed. 

I had a schedule, you know. I wrote it into my calendar and everything. I made sure that I would know what I should be doing at any given point in time.

Bedtime was an hour ago.

I'm not sure that procrastination warrants the kind of despair Paul voices in Romans 7. Hopefully, I won't look back to this moment a few weeks from now, report card in hand, rueing the day I began social networking.
